SCOTTSDALE, AZ — Scottsdale Fashion Square has added another high-end luxury brand to its lineup: Versace.
The Italian fashion company will open a 3,131-square-foot retail store inside the mall's so-called "luxury wing," near Neiman Marcus, and will be located across from Michael Kors, the mall announced in a news release on Monday. It is anticipated to open in the spring of 2020, the release said.
Michael Guerin, senior vice president of leasing for Macerich, the company that manages Scottsdale Fashion Square and several other malls in the Valley, said in a statement that "this inspired brand is a tremendous complement to the curated collection of luxury stores and experiences at Scottsdale Fashion Square."
The mall has added a number of high-end stores, businesses, and restaurants in the last year and a half, part of its multi-million dollar renovation, including Industrious, a co-working space; luxury brands like Trina Turk, Morphe, UNTUCKit, Tommy John, Apple, Saint Laurent; Wonderspaces, an immersive art gallery; and restaurants, such as Ocean 44, Tocaya Organica, and Toca Madera.
More restaurants are in the works and on the way. Zinque, a French-inspired bistro, is anticipated to open outside the luxury wing before the end of the year. An opening date has not yet been announced.
As we've previously reported, Nobu, the world-renowned Japanese restaurant, is expected to open in the spring, along with Farmhouse, a California-based farm-to-table restaurant.
Nearby, Caesars Entertainment, known for its Las Vegas hotels, will open a non-gaming boutique hotel (a first for the brand), called Caesars Republic Scottsdale.

The hotel is expected to open in 2021.
